I don’t know about you, but I don’t often let myself watch, do, or read things if I’ve heard too much hype about them.
There’s something that just turns me off from any book or movie when I know that other people have liked it. Which sounds like a personal problem, I know.
But I think what that really tells you is that when people really want you to like something they do, it all comes down to your personal experience, no matter what they say to convince you. Recommendations and reviews are no match for your experience.
So, don’t ever take someone’s word for it. See for yourself. In that way, you’ll live your best life, experiencing things the way only you were meant to experience them.
